I love this little café. Passing through Lismore we stopped for lunch and went into the Summer House but there were no seats available. I think this was a blessing as we walked down to the Rustic café which has a really nice charm, rustic is definitely an apt name. Really friendly staff and delicious homemade soup and filling toasties.... More

This cafe is awesome and was a highlight of our trip to Ireland. We went to Lismore to see Lismore Castle and the day we went was chilly and damp, so we were looking for a little place to get some tea. We found the rustic cafe- and we are so glad we did! We just ordered a cup of... More

Stopped into the rustic cafe for a quick lunch and we were surprised by the quality of the food and hospitality with which met us there. A gorgeous beef and veg soup and delicious toasted special served by three ladies who showed genuine friendliness and welcome. Super spot

Stopped in for lunch after a lovely time in the gardens of Lismore Castle. Proprietress let me know where the nearest ATM was, and gave my wife a complementary coffee and a piece of cake while she waited for me to return. It is a great sandwich place. Had a great Ham, cheese and coleslaw sandwich panini with a wonderful... More

There's not much choice in lismore in a Sunday, the cafe looks welcoming enough but it's narrow and very dark at the back. We just wanted coffee which came with lovely free taster biscuit, and a great iced bun for junior but the coffee was quite possibly the worst I have ever tasted. It had a weak and burnt back...
